RE: [tdf-discuss] Help vendor-lock-in awareness


On first run though they give you the option to choose the XML or ODF format
on 2010 and upwards

Isn't there a standard Office Open XML Document Format?

What is the difference between office open xml and standard microsoft docx
formats in LibreOffice and why does LibreOffice include both?

is there also a link where I can read about this... the only think I have
found useful is what open xml is.

I don't know anyone who uses Office so I'm afraid I can't answer. That's
why I send PDFs - everyone can open those and see the same document.

My question though Simon is how well is ODF formatting preserved when
opening up ODF formats in office 2010 and above on windows.

I generally advise people to send me PDFs rather than editable documents
unless there's a real need for me to edit them. That way there's no risk
anyone will get locked-in to anything :-)

If I *do* need to be able to edit I request Hybrid PDF files, which are
PDFs
with the original ODF source embedded. They are easy to make with
LibreOffice and I've created a tutorial here:

Friends,

Every email I send has the footer as in this one.

The purpose is to achieve;

   1. Vendor-lock-in awarness
   2. Hook in on the society learning curve status.

The message is:
ODT in place of DOC/DOCX,
ODS in place of XLS/XLSX,
ODP in place of PPT/PPTX.

ODF is one bridge to far. People think in DOC, XLS and PPT. To get
them away from that we should start from there. Not with a high level
ODF concept!

Met vriendelijke groet,
Kind regards,
